In collaboration with the Foreign Language Centre at the Schmalkalden University of Applied Sciences, the International Office offers German language courses both during the semester as well as during the lecture-free period.

German language courses during the semester

The German courses offered throughout the semester are open to all foreign students of the Schmalkalden University of Applied Sciences who want to improve their knowledge of German during their stay in Germany. The courses are free of charge and cover the levels A1 – C1 as defined by the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. In order to join the German language courses, students must take the placement test at the beginning of each semester. Students who miss the placement test but still want to attend one of the German language courses should contact Ms. Petschauer (ra.petschauer(at)hs-sm.de). Guest students interested in visiting the German language courses should contact the International Office.

What can you expect?

  • 5 German classes per week with experienced language teachers (approx. 75 classes / term)
  • a language exam at the end of the semester
  • a language certificate from the Schmalkalden University of Applied Sciences
  • 8 ECTS if you attend the course regularly and pass the final exam

Intensive German language courses during the lecture-free period

Two levels of the intensive German courses are offered and last for four weeks. They usually take place in March and September and are open to all foreign students with German knowledge ranging from a basic (A2) to an intermediate level (B1/B2). Please note that the above-mentioned levels are not fixed. The level of the courses we offer depend on the knowledge of the participants.

What can you expect?

  • 5 German classes language per day with experienced language teachers (approx. 100 classes / month)
  • a language exam at the end of the course
  • a language certificate from the Schmalkalden University of Applied Sciences
  • 3 ECTS if you attend the course regularly and pass the final exam

Because the intensive German language courses during the lecture-free period are an extracurricular offer at the Schmalkalden University of Applied Sciences, a fee of 200 EUR per month is required. There must be a minimum number of 10 participants for the course to take place.
